While it can be very unnatural for some people, staying awake at night is alright for you at times.
Just like some people are morning birds, some are night owls.
Don’t feel like you are missing out on what happens during the day when you can experience all of the great effects of staying up at night. Here are five reasons why staying awake at night isn’t so bad.
1. The Best Ideas Occur at Night
Sometimes, the best ideas and innovations arrive at night. I have many experiences with this. During the day, when I had to write an essay, especially for school, I noticed that my mind wouldn’t work. I kept getting writer’s block until the night came around. During the night, I had a totally different experience. I could do whatever I wanted to do. I would have wonderful ideas come to mind. Sometimes the best ideas occur at night.
2. Time Alone Without Noise Or Talking
Late night happens to be a time when most people are asleep unless they work the night shift. I happen to think this is the most peaceful time of all. I get time to read, eat, and pray without any kind of distractions or constant talking or yelling. It helps me be at peace with myself and surroundings.
This can be difficult throughout the day when everyone is busy with working and getting things done. Late night works for me. I get time to quietly unwind at the end of a long day and gather my thoughts effectively. That is why I think staying up late is not a bad thing at all. The fact of the matter is how you end up using the time. I know that I use it wisely. I know you too can use your time wisely at night.
3. Accomplishing More Is Easier Without Background Noise
Because you are the only one awake, you can focus on whatever it is you are doing. When I was in college and in high school, I used to stay up late studying and doing a$$ignments. It was easier than working throughout the day because there were all types of conversation going on around me. It just made things easier for me to focus without all of the background noise that happens during the day.
By working at night, I was able to not only accomplish more, but remember things I couldn’t have done if I had studied at another time. So, I greatly benefitted from it. It just be thing that you are looking for. Just try and time will only tell.
4. Enjoying Time For Yourself
The time at night is something that enables you to enjoy yourself. You can simply turn on the television without anyone telling you that they do not want to watch a certain channel that you would like to. Now, it is simply the television and you. Turn on your favorite episode of “Modern Family,” “Big Bang Theory,” “Mom,” or watch movies and documentaries from Netflix. If that is not on your bucket list, you can go ahead, check the DVR, and see if you have any interesting things to watch there. The list is pretty much endless.
However, if you would like to do something else besides watching television, you can take out a photo album, and look at your favorite memories. I know I do that when I feel lonely. I feel much better after having looked at my childhood pictures. Maybe, this can help you too.
Remember, the point is to enjoy yourself. It is okay to stay up late. But, if you get tired, go to sleep. There is nothing wrong with you except that you are tired. If you aren’t then that is fine also. It depends on your needs. We are all different. No need to be someone you are not.
